    PostSubject: Moorish Legacy   Sun Nov 21, 2010 2:12 am

    When a national holiday falls on a Tuesday in Spain the whole country takes the Monday
    off and calls it a "puente" (a bridge). The first time this happened as a new arrival in
    Madrid we headed down to Cordoba for a long weekend and my love affair with Andalucia
    began. I couldn't believe the beauty of this former capital of Moorish Spain and to this
    day I try to go there several times a year. With time I would discover Seville and Granada
    which added to my fascination with Andalucia and in recent times I've found myself
    increasingly intrigued by the much underrated city of Malaga. Incidentally, when two
    national holidays fall in the same week, on a Tuesday and a Thursday, some workers call
    it an "acqueducto" and take the whole week off!
